Frequently Asked Questions


How many people from my company can attend FREE GMA events?

ALL employees of GMA member companies may attend GMA events. Just don't forget to register!

How is my membership billed?

GMA membership dues are billed annually on the month following the month you joined.

Can I make payment arrangements for membership dues?

We are sensitive to the current economic situation of many of our members and will gladly work with you to arrange a payment plan. Contact GMA at (336) 378-6350.

How can I be featured as a speaker at a GMA seminar?

Our speakers are chosen by volunteer committees and we strive to utilize our own member experts for our Teach Me Tuesday Series & Digital Marketing Institute. Our Workplace Workshop speakers are also chosen by a volunteer committee from submissions received. If you wish to be considered as a GMA event speaker, email info@mygma.org.

Is there a waiting list for GMA networking groups?

Our three networking groups provide a non-competitive environment for members, so there is a waiting list for certain business categories. As soon as a spot opens up, GMA will contact the first person on the list for that category. Please call GMA if you wish to inquire about networking group availability. You must be a current GMA member to be added to the wait list.

Will you disseminate promotional or newsworthy information about my business to your members?

Because of the high number of requests, we are not able to send out information on specific businesses to our members. We encourage you to submit your member news and also consider purchasing ads in Member Matters, E-Member Matters and Trends. Call GMA for current rates and availability. You may also contact fellow GMA members using the membership directory.

Can I get the email addresses of all GMA members?

We do not distribute our members emails per their request.

What are the benefits of sponsoring a GMA event?

GMA has event sponsorships available to fit every budget. As an event sponsor you can increase your visibility with fellow members and take advantage of face-to-face marketing opportunities to share information about your product or service. Product sampling is not allowed at GMA events.

What is GMA's policy on bringing guests to events?

GMA events are for members only. If you have a friend or colleague that you think may be interested in joining GMA, please call (336) 378-6350 to arrange a guest pass. A guest may attend a maximum of two GMA events.
